Chase Holbrook, QB, New Mexico State

The next Joe Flacco? Chase Holbrook was initially heavily recruited as a tight end when he came out of high school. He balked at the idea and signed with Southeastern Louisiana University as a quarterback. In 2004, Holbrook participated in ten games, throwing just nine passes for seven completions. He transferred to New Mexico State in the spring of 2005. He was redshirted for the 2005 season, but became the team's starter in 2006. He started all of the team's twelve games, completing 396 out of 566 passes (70.0%) for 4,619 yards with 34 TD and 9 INT. He then started all of the twelve games the team played in 2007, recording 381 competitions out of 543 passes (70.2%) for 3,866 yards with 26 TD and 18 INT. Chase Holdbrook holds 21 school passing records. Holbrook is a big and strong classic drop back passer. He has good mechanics and throws a very catch-able ball. However, he needs to alter his release point. Makes secondary reads with relative ease. Is very accurate on the short to medium range. Despite his size, he lacks a big league arm. Ball floats when throwing the deep outs. Is a stature in the pocket (5.20). Played on a pass happy system in college. Level of competition is a concern. Holbrook has been compared with Joe Flacco by some pundits. He is not even close to Flacco on talent or throwing ability. He looks good on films, but the more you watch him the more concerned you are about selecting him high in the draft. Holbrook is overrated at this time. He is a product of the system-type QB who will need time to develop, if he does, on the next level. See him as strictly a backup option at this time.
